Dipset Fan Club Alert:
Our buddy A-Trak just posted this mysterious teaser on Instagram… so what is this all about?
A-Trak (as well as his brother Dave from the group Chromeo) is one of the biggest Dipset fans that I know. Seriously. He’s already a music expert with an encyclopedic memory for rap miscellany, but if you ask A-Trak about any far-removed auxiliary member of the Dip Taliban… I bet he’ll know their entire C.V. Wiki-style. Seriously.
So it made total sense to me when I heard that finally….A-Trak and Cam’ron were working together on new music!
And fans can expect more than just a one-off. We will be getting a full EP on A-Trak’s Fool’s Gold Records! Since A-Trak posted that short teaser just a few minutes ago, Just Blaze has already chimed in, saying he programmed drums onto one track. And A-Trak has tweeted that the full lineup of producers is star-packed.
It’s the perfect coming together of Cam’s forever street cred and A-Trak’s global music festival fanatics.
Plus…Just think of all the clever logo parody tees this will inspire!
UPDATE: More details via Complex: The EP is called Federal Reserve, and will feature appearances from Jim Jones and Juelz Santana. It’ll be the first time Dipset has appeared on wax together since 2010’s “Salute”! Dame Dash will executive produce the EP, which we can expect to drop this Spring.
Oh, and A-Trak is also working on a project with Brick Squad producer Lex Luger under the name Low Pros. Together they’ll be collaborating with an interesting mix of artists including Juvenile, Travi$ Scott and “Danny Glover” sensation Young Thug.
Speaking of Dipset’s streetwear trending power…after the hysteria over those $200 Dipset socks and Dipset jerseys…Dame Dash and Cam’ron have apparently locked in a deal to produced a full line of new Dipset-branded clothing, to be sold on Karmaloop.
They’ve come a long way from the original Dipset tees and beanies that I got from the now defunct Santana’s Town shop in Harlem back in the early 00’s. Shout to Juelz’ mom running the store ; )
